What is the difference between the Brother TZ tapes and the Brother TZe tapes? Are they interchangable? The TZe tapes are more environmental friendly; plastic weight reduced by 15%, contains 5% recycled plastic, smaller packaging, and energy efficient film ribbon. TZe tapes can be used in place of TZ tapes. Some newer P-touch models have been designed to use only the TZe tapes (a “TZe” symbol on P-touch machine cover) and in those models, TZ tapes cannot be used in place of TZe tapes.

Laminated tape sticks to virtually any surface and is durable enough to withstand scrapes and abrasions. Because it's water resistant, it can be used outdoors, as well as indoors. It shrugs off spills of any kind from water to oil to chemicals and won't fade under harsh UV rays. And it stays on through hot and cold environments from freezers to microwaves. We have laminated tapes down to a science.
